My name is Elisa and I spent most of my life in Sacile, Italy. I also stayed briefly in Milan and Berlin, to then stop in London for a while. Currently, ég á heima í Reykjavík. I work mostly on editorial projects and image-making. I enjoy abstraction, satellite footage and empty spaces. I would have probably made a brilliant astronaut.
